I Love Watching You Growing Up Together!

Excited to say that this was featured at Scrap for Help!!


My girls are growing up so fast, sometimes they get along great, sometimes one wrong look and World War 3 breaks out. Last summer they had such a great day out building sand castles and collecting shells on the beach in Oregon, I wanted to document that. They fight a lot, and I know it will probably get worse as they get closer to their teen years, but they do love each other and they can still play amazingly well together sometimes! I still can't believe sometimes that I am a mom to these beautiful little personalities, they make me proud, they tire me out, they exasperate me. I love them so much, and it brings a tear to my eye to see time passing by so fast. I am so glad I am their mom!!

I'd love to enter this in the 7 Dots Nature challenge, I used shells we collected from the beach trip! I also used the gorgeous sketch from Once Upon a Sketch and used the word grow for the theme of the layout. My journaling above is written on the back of the layout.


I used several items in this layout from Tresors de Luxe. I sprayed the Ivory Venice Lace (LA-025) with Lindy's Stamp Gang Tibetan Poppy Teal.


I used a Rustic Shabby Chic Pale Aqua cluster (FL-20)


and Tea Green Velvet and Rhinestone Flower (FL-004). I thought the pale green flower reminded me of sea
anenome and worked well with the beach theme!! 



The final little touch from Tresors de Luxe is the Tiny Shabby Chic Wooden Clothespin (FL-024)
 that holds my title. Just love using these!!



I love the Molossi chipboard Fence Wire Panel (small) that I used here. It reminded me of fishing netting and I thought it would work great here for added texture for the layout! I sprayed it here with Lindy's Stamp Gang Tibetan Poppy Teal mist.

I used real shells from our beach trip, beautiful 7 Dots Dreamer paper and stickers, and gorgeous flowers and lace from Tresors de Luxe.

Finally, I'd love to enter this in Berry71Bleu's Anything Goes challenge and the Scrap for Help Bubble Wrap challenge, I used my distress inks and some bubble wrap I had in my office to make the bubbles on the layout!
